Bronx Homeless Shelter Manager Sexually Assaulted, Shot to Death

CBS New York, April 29, 2015

The manager of a New York shelter was abducted at gunpoint by a former resident who attempted to sexually assault her before shooting her to death, police said.

Officials say 36-year-old Ana Isabel Charle was walking to her car near the 108-bed Project Renewal Shelter in the Bronx Monday around 6 p.m. where she encountered an armed West Spruill.

Police say Spruill sexually assaulted Charle in her car and as she escaped, a naked Spruill chased her and shot her three times in the head and chest.

Charle was found shot and killed on Bullard Avenue, just a block from the shelter that she oversaw.

Authorities say the 39-year-old man had moved out of the shelter in January and police are searching for a motive in the slaying.

A former boyfriend of Charle’s told The New York Times she was aware of the dangers of the job and had transferred to Project Renewal Shelter from another faculty, in part due to safety concerns.

Neighbors in Charle’s Whitestone, Queens, neighborhood are in disbelief, describing her as a friendly mother who adored her two daughters.

“It’s very heartbreaking, a young mother with young kids that lost their mom,” neighbor Harry Mallios said.

Spruill has six prior arrests, including for attempted murder, and served time in Michigan for assault with a deadly weapon.

    Was the guy black? Guess this story will push Baltimore off page one. Not.

    • Susannah

      Yes, he was black. And of course this story will be prominently featured as always when a black thug kills an innocent White (not). I guess the lives of White mothers with small children just don’t carry the same emotional impact as those of worthless thugs who can only kill, injure, and destroy.

      • dd121

        The real reason is not emotional. It’s that it doesn’t advance the leftist narrative that blacks are poor innocent people who are constantly the victim of white racism.

    • Peter L. Giamatti

      A black guy dying accidentally at best, by his own hand, at worst, vs. a woman hunted down, sexually assaulted and murdered. And people wonder why we’re on Amren.

    • DailyKenn showed him as a nig.

        …ger.

          Ha-ha…I see what you did there!

    • pcmustgo

      yup, very creepy looking black guy w/ a weird left eye… shelter housed sex offenders.

    • InAFreeCountry

      She was White, he is a 39-yr-old teen.

      • Speedy Steve

        What’s up with that animal’s crazy eye?

  • Peter L. Giamatti

    ” and police are searching for a motive in the slaying.” … She was white and pretty.

      These are the jungle savages I live alongside here in the Bronx.
      I feel like Johnny Weismuller.

        Harry, you are giving away your age.

        • John Smith

          You don’t have to be that old, I remember watching the Tarzan movies as re-runs on TV.

      • Tim

        Sorry Oil Can, but there`s gonna be no herd of Jungle animals racing to your side! Only theirs…

      • DiversityIsDeath

        Is you on safari or sumfin?

    • Samuel Hathaway

      The police in this case are idiots. They know good and well that the black murderer deliberately chose a white woman to murder. Colorblindness is a joke.

    • InAFreeCountry

      She was breathing and had female parts. She could have been 100 years old and he’d gone for it.

  • Mack0

    “Searching for a motive” Really? He wanted to degrade and rape a white women. There’s your motivation. Case closed.

    I notice the reporter, Janelle Burrell, made this comment about the victim, Ana Isabel Charle, that after the victim was raped, “when she tried to take off, he [the perpetrator] shot her.”

    This makes the victim sound like she was a burgar “trying to take off” after committing a rime.

    • Peter L. Giamatti

      To use the word “escape”, would no doubt be “raycissss”.

  • Chip Carver

    Searching for a motive in the case? Why? These impulsive creatures do whatever comes to mind.

    • Tim

      I often find myself wishing that the narrative would match the motive…

    • awb

      Their mind, not my mind. We are all the same? Sure.

  • Red

    I’ve seen this story on several different media outlets. The thug that did this is beyond subhuman. Naturally, CBS New York had no picture or description of the low-life and I think we all know why.

    What a waste. Beautiful looking lady.

  • a1781054

    Amy Biehl syndrome?

  • Zimriel

    I’m reminded of the opening scene of “The Leopard’s Spots”. In it, the local pastor is meeting with the idealistic carpetbagger who has come to North Carolina to help “reconstruct” it. The pastor asks her just one question – does she have any cats?

    The carpetbagger happily burbles that, yes, she has about a dozen of the cute furry little critters.

    That’s when the pastor realises that he is dealing with someone who simply cannot be reasoned with.

    • Tim

      i`ve never seen or heard of that movie. I finally understood what our Texas history teacher was trying to instill about carpet baggers and scalawags watching Rock Hudson in “The Undefeated” years after Junior High. Carpet Bagger; “Do you mind if I step down?”… Colonel: “Yes I mind! And my father and mother resting over there,they mind too!”…

      • Zimriel

        It’s not a movie. It’s a book by Thomas Dixon; the first part of a trilogy.

        You might know the trilogy better under the title “Birth of a Nation”.

  • SentryattheGate

    A mother of two should not have been putting herself at risk that that! She should have made her kids the priority instead of the homeless. Hopefully, her kids will learn from their mom’s mistakes.

    • Peter L. Giamatti

      Lest we forget, she shouldnt be working at all. The feminist illusion: “I’m important if I work. If I stay home and be a mother and wife, I’m a ‘slave'”.

      • ViktorNN

        Unfortunately, not as many white families as we’d like have the luxury of one parent being able to stay at home. And of course, if she’s a single parent then she had no choice at all.

        • Peter L. Giamatti

          Dont become a single parent. I’m serious.

          • John Smith

            Sometimes, it’s unavoidable.

          • SentryattheGate

            I was widowed with young kids.

          • Quido

            I’m sure you raised them well

        • Peter L. Giamatti

          and for many, “cant afford” means can’t afford cable TV premium channels and gourmet restaurants. I bet she wishes now she’d not become hooked on Game of Thrones or whatever the cr&@ is.

          • ViktorNN

            She’s not capable of wishing for anything anymore.

            She’s dead.

        • SentryattheGate

          I didn’t intend to say that she should not have been working, only that such a dangerous job could jeopardize her more-important role as a mother.

  • NoMosqueHere

    People who work up close and personal with dangerous animals can get killed.

    • phillyguy

      I knew a lion tamer, dangerous job he did it for over 30 years in the old Cole Brothers Circus, a lot of close calls, danger comes with the job.

  • Jason Lewis

    Just saw her pic, trying to post it. Pretty woman. I’m sure she thought these folks were the salt of the Earth and we were scum. Hard lesson.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      She had two daughters. I wonder if the father of two daughters is black?

      • Usually Much Calmer

        Why?

        • Exuberant Auditor

          Helps finetune the degree of sympathy we impart to her death.

      • John Smith

        These SJWs do tend to mudshark to a far higher degree than most white females.

      • Red

        According to one article I saw, she moved to the US ten years ago from Spain to start a new life with her daughters.

        With this information I would suspect they’re not black, but you never know.

    • Usually Much Calmer

      You don’t know what she thought and she’s dead.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      She fancied herself a “grizzly whisperer”: a white person who is able to move among Africans without being attacked.

      But, they go the way of Timothy Treadwell in the end. Treadwell was Number 1 one with the tree-hugging Libs, until he came out the other end as number 2.

    “Neighbors in Charle’s Whitestone, Queens, neighborhood are in disbelief, describing her as a friendly mother who adored her two daughters.”

    Well, well, well.. We are not in disbelief, just angry that white females are slow to understand that they have no business putting themselves at risk to deprive their white daughters of a white mother. West Spruill, who lived in the building, knew that Ana Isabel Charle was a “friendly mother who adored her two daughters” which is why Spruill knew she was an easy target.

    • Tim

      I usually like concise analysis of the type you just provided but in this case I am sad. It seems she MUST have over ridden her own maternal instincts EXACTLY as you described…

  • Hilis Hatki

    “…a naked Spruill chased her…”

    Maybe he was collecting for the Red Cross.

    • John Smith

      Too bad Harry Callahan works on the Left Coast.

  • ViktorNN

    So many young white liberal women get out of college thinking that the most noble thing they can do “to make a difference” is to go into social work and various forms of non-profit work.

    This is a prime example of why white parents should strongly encourage them not to.

    The non-white pets of white liberal women view their white saviourism with resentment and ultimately, as weakness.

    • Exuberant Auditor

      They can make a difference, actually… by having five kids with a white man.

    • Exuberant Auditor

      They can make a difference, actually… by having five white kids. Can you imagine if every white woman did that? Our population would double in a couple of generations. Now that I call a difference!

  • John Smith

    When you volunteer to act as a zookeeper, don’t act surprised if one of the animals bites you.

    • Light from the East

      It’s actually an insult to animals because animals don’t use guns to kill people.

  • belajadevotchka2

    It never fails, in every single last one of these “incidents”, police are ALWAYS “searching for a motive.”

    • belajadevotchka2

      Also- that reporter! Was that RuPaul?!?!

    • Light from the East

      For most blacks, motive is always spontaneous and random, they act on their instinct. Most of black crimes are not well-planed and organized.

  • Deacon Blue

    I think we need to get a bunch of White people to start “protesting” in Queens.
    Maybe we can burn down the local CVS…loot liquor stores and get the borough president
    to order the police to stand down too. Oh…sorry…wait…we are the wrong color. That
    won’t work. Hey so if Obama has a son…this guy looks like he’s had a few too many
    Skittles by the looks of him. Hands up, don’t rape and shoot?

    • AndrewInterrupted

      Yes, more nuance between the 1st World and the 3rd. People who act civilized are portrayed as people who don’t care. Richard Nixon’s ‘…silent majority’. If you’re not out in the streets waving banners, making poopy faces, and stealing sneakers–then you must not really care.

    • Lexonaut

      “Hands up, don’t rape and shoot?”

      Not bad. I’m reminded of a joke from my long ago youth …

      Q: Cream in your coffee?
      A: Not lately.

  • Tim

    I had a big, old school Black dude show up at my vacant warehouse at 5:15 am. He said his car ran out of gas and he needed money to buy a can. I said “Sorry Mister…” He then told me to look around and find him a can. So to placate him I pretended to look around, passing over anything I didn`t wat to give out and not get back. I told him I was sorry again. He left but returned twenty minutes later with an empty fryolater grease can and commanded me to get in my car with him to find a gas station. I then spoke to him like I should have the first time, asking if he thought that @#$% would work with me and demanded in return to exit the property while palming my .38… Lesson learned, No contact is the only correct contact.

    • SentryattheGate

      An older black woman asked me for a ride. I gave her a ride to where she was going even though it was beyond where I was going. Then she asked me for $5 when she was getting out of the car! I don’t think she even thanked me! Nothing is ever good enough for them!

      • Quido

        A black guy asked me to give him a ride to the doctor, I thought he needed help so I drove him. It turned out he wanted the ride to an optometrist he knew to borrow money. Sure enough a couple of days later he asked me for a ride again. No more rides I told him. He hasn’t been back since.

      • Tim

        In my case I got the vibe that he was seeing if I`d drive myself to a secondary crime scene… But I know what you mean also…

  • Lexonaut

    “Police say Spruill sexually assaulted Charle in her car and as she
    escaped, a naked Spruill chased her and shot her three times in the head
    and chest.”

    Right. Leave no living witnesses. Then just stroll down the street buck naked. “Who you talking to, white bread? Me? What I do?”

  • DiversityIsDeath

    Of course the perp is a jig. The raped/murdered victim is a White woman. Statistically there are almost no Whites living in homeless shelters. The NYC tax payers have been forced to support this creature, and have paid out over millions of dollars over the years to house/clothe/feed/heathcare this worthless subhuman beast. And to what good end? For what purpose?

  • DiversityIsDeath

    Ana Isabel Charle has a facebook page “en espanol”. Shes a light skinned hispanic.

    • Susannah

      I read an article that stated she was from Spain and had moved from there to New York over ten years ago to “help those less fortunate.” She didn’t wind up being all that fortunate herself.

      • Light from the East

        Thanks for providing the information how long she had been working for this organization, which further confirms my calculation. You can see my comment above. The same procedure can be used to predict so many things.

  • Light from the East

    According to my calculation, engaging this type of job automatically increase your accidental death rate by 8 times. A normal rate in the US is around 6.5 per 100,000 people. Her rate will be 0.052%. Don’t think the number is small, because you have to work 262 days a year (weekdays), if you keep working 7 to 8 years non-stop, a possible death is around the corner for you. My guess is that she has worked for this organization for more than 7 years. Her unfortunate future was determined at the moment when she decided to do this and didn’t quit at the 1st year.

  • USN Veteran

    They’re searching for a motive? Really? They shouldn’t have to search very hard or for very long.
